Song of the Week: “1973” by Beth Orton


“1973” is a song by Beth Orton off her new album Kidsticks.  Orton is an English singer-songwriter who blends folk music with electronica to create “folkltronica.”  1973 is a significant year since that was the year I was born, but I expect Orton isn’t aware of that.

  1. I listened to a lot of Beth Orton back in the early 2000s when I was living in Austin. Kind of lost track of her when we moved back to Iowa – the radio isn’t as diverse here and it wasn’t as easy to get music digitally. Anywhoo…I really love her voice and her unique style. Thanks for sharing! It’s like reconnecting with an old friend :)
